Mobvoi has updated its Android app to reflect that it will soon be selling the TicWatch E3, two days before its official unveiling. A hands-on video has confirmed most specifications about the smartwatch too, including its SoC, RAM and storage.

Mobvoi has hinted that it is on the brink of launching a new smartwatch, its first since last year's TicWatch Pro 3. As the graphic below shows, Mobvoi has confirmed that it will host a launch event at 09:00 EST on June 16. It is unclear why Mobvoi has used EST (Eastern Standard Time), because North America currently observes European Daylight Time (EDT). Nonetheless, the teaser implies that Mobvoi will release a new smartwatch.

While Mobvoi is yet to confirm what smartwatch it will reveal, it has updated its Android application to reflect that it will release the TicWatch E3. Funnily enough, the render shown matches one that XDA Developers published in February.

However, some people have got their hands on a TicWatch E3 early. Essentially, the TicWatch E3 looks like a less chunky TicWatch Pro 3, and more like many other smartwatches. According to leaked packaging, the TicWatch E3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 SoC, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and IP68 certification. In addition, Mobvoi has also included a 2.5D curved display, more than 20 workout modes, a 24/7 heart-rate monitor and a SpO2 sensor, among other features.

It seems that the TicWatch E3 runs Wear OS 2.x out of the box, soon to be replaced by Wear OS 3.0, also known as Wear. Hopefully, Mobvoi clarifies if the TicWatch E3 will receive Google's new Wear OS platform, as it did not so when asked about the TicWatch Pro 3. The pair have the same SoC and amount of RAM, so we would imagine that both would receive the upgrade or neither.
